Come and See

This widely acclaimed film from Soviet director Elem Klimov is astunning, senses-shattering plunge into the dehumanizing horrors ofwar. As Nazi forces encroach on his small village in present-day Belarus, teenage Flyora eagerly joins the Soviet resistance. Rather than the adventureand glory he envisioned, what he finds is a waking nightmare ofunimaginable carnage and cruelty—rendered with a feverish, otherworldly intensity by Klimov's subjective camerawork andexpressionistic sound design. Nearly suppressed by Soviet censors whotook eight years to approve its script, Come and See is perhaps themost visceral, impossible-to-forget antiwar film ever made.
